Yesterday, in front of the School Service Commission Headquarters in Salt Lake, the police pounced with their lathis on peacefully protesting students and youth. Even girls were pushed to the ground and beaten up, though no lady constables were present at the scene. The demonstration called by the State Committees of the SFI and DYFI began at 1 pm in front of the Beleghata SAI Complex from where a large rally marched on to Karunamoyee Saltlake and assembled in front of the SSC building. They were protesting the well known scam in the recruitment of primary teachers and demanding the reinstitution of the SSC exams. When they wanted to submit a deputation to the SSC authorities the police started pushing them back. Then without any provocation the police began to lathicharge. Several were injured and taken to the Bidhannagar Hospital. Among them two girls from Hooghly, Tina Kangshabonik and Manami Pal, were in bad shape and had to be transferred to Nilratan Sarkar Medical College.
